Gabriel Knight is an author and owner of a rare books store in New Orleans. His subjects are quite unusual and his latest book has to do with a series of voodoo murders. As Gabriel, you get to investigate these murders not only in the mysterious locales of New Orleans but in Germany and Africa as well.
You won't be alone in your travels and investigation either. Gabriel hires an assistant, Grace Nakimura, who helps him run the bookshop and gets involved in the case (but not as actively as in future Gabriel Knight adventures). During his investigation of recent "voodoo murders," Gabriel gets drawn into his own past, a past filled with bizarre and strange ancestors with a rich heritage of dealing with the macabre.
Not only does Gabriel find his own life in danger, but those of his friends as well. Is there a curse on the family name? Have his ancestors left a legacy of dabbling in the dark recesses of our world and inadvertently forced Gabriel into a life of crime solving with supernatural and occult-like overtones? Welcome, to the world of Shadow Hunters, where dreams turn to nightmares.
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers uses a point-and-click interface in conjunction with drop down menus and icons and is played from third-person perspective. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
